Taking in the Scene

One thing Bhutan is not short on is a breathtaking landscape. Around every bend it seemed there was another picturesque scene awaiting us. Combined with the traditional architecture of the Bhutanese people (it’s pretty much stayed the same since the 17th century), the pristine blue skies, golden green rice fields and majestic fir-lined Himalayas make the view truly one of a kind.
